Whenever my husband asks me what I want for Christmas, I usually tell him something I need, rather than something frivolous that I could do without.  I’m all about practicality, and that shows in the gifts I buy for friends and family, too.

New shoes are always at the top of my list, for giving and receiving, and this year is no exception.  Earlier this year, I gave birth to my son, and my feet grew by one shoe size.  I got away with wearing flip flops during the summer months, but now that fall is here, and winter is right around the corner, I really need to get myself some proper fitting shoes and boots.

My husband John recently had knee surgery and also needs a new pair of shoes.  His decade-long knee injury always caused his shoes to wear unevenly due to the way he walked.  Now that his knee has been surgically repaired, he is in need of a pair of comfortable and supportive shoes to wear as he recovers from surgery.

My 2.5 year old daughter, Kayleigh, has grown significantly since last winter, and she needs a new pair of snow boots.

As you can see, we are all in need of new shoes, and what better time to get them than during the holiday season?!

Now, you may say “What fun is it buying something that you need, when you could just buy something fun that you want instead?”  Well, it’s simple, really.  New shoes are fun, especially when you shop for them at Famous Footwear!

Famous Footwear has a huge inventory of shoes for the whole family to choose from.  Whether you are looking for boots, sneakers or slippers, you are sure to find something you love at Famous Footwear.

When I buy new shoes, I usually bring the family into the store to look around and try on shoes.  I love that Famous Footwear only sells shoes, so there is nothing else to distract us from what we went there to buy in the first place.  We can get in and out very quickly, which is really important when you have a baby and a toddler in tow.

This year, I didn’t feel like getting the kids ready to go out, so I placed an order online at  I already knew what size shoes we all needed, and I know what my husband and daughter like, so it was really easy to find them both something they would love.  The online order process was so easy, and I received my order very quickly.

My husband and I have always been a huge fan of Skechers, so I bought each of us a pair of Skechers memory foam sneakers.  Mine are soooo comfortable, and he said that his were too.  Comfort is definitely at the top of our list when choosing new shoes.

I bought these Skechers Holding Aces Memory Foam Slip On Shoes, and I just love them! Being a stay-at-home Mom to a crawling baby and a toddler, I am extremely busy.  Most days, I lounge around in yoga pants and I need comfortable shoes to chase the kids around in, too.

These shoes fit all of my needs so well, and they are super cute, too.  One of my favorite things about them is that they are slip on, which comes in very handy when I’m in a hurry and need to get my shoes on quickly.

These shoes are so versatile.  I can wear them around the house, outdoors, or if I go out to run errands.

For my husband, we bought these Skechers Superior Bonical Relaxed Fit Memory Foam Sneakers.  They are so him.  He always wears brown shoes, and he fell in love with these.

They are dressy enough that he can wear them to his job, but he can also wear them around the house, or when we go out shopping, or to visit friends and family, etc.

Kayleigh honestly isn’t really very interested in movies like Frozen yet, but she does love Elsa, thanks to those surprise egg videos she is obsessed with watching on YouTube.  I found these adorable Frozen Snow Day Winter Boots that light up on the bottom, and just knew I had to buy them for her.

I love that they are a pretty blue color.  Blue has always been my favorite color, and I like that they aren’t pink like most shoes and clothes are for little girls these days.

They fit her perfectly, are super easy for her to put on, even by herself, and they look like they will keep her feet very warm during the winter months here in Maine.

We are all loving our new shoes, and I can’t think of a better gift to give or receive!
